Q. The heirs agree not to take anything of the cash left by their deceased mother, but to contribute it to Sadqah for Isaal-e-Thawaab for her. Is this permissible?

A. It is not permissible. It is necessary to first divide the cash and distribute it to the heirs. Thereafter, whoever wishes to contribute for the Isaal-eThawaab, may do so. But this cannot be done prior to distribution of the assets. Also, it is not permissible to apply any pressure on any heir to make a contribution.
